Overview

Can a biologist be fiercely supportive of the scientific process and still believe in God? How does travelling shape a young mind, and can it influence the path you take in life? Are humans really all that different from each other, when we consider our fundamental belief systems? These questions and many others are addressed in Life As I Know It, a book written by a scientist, who just happens to be a Mennonite.

In this book, Richard Penner shares his knowledge of the birth of Earth, humanity's role in evolution, and how religion has contributed to who we have become as a species. Through it all, nature and the natural world play an important role in the stories he tells and the explanations he shares.

Aimed at bridging a widening gap between different generations, Life as I Know It is Penner's way of sharing a bit of his knowledge about all aspects of life. Penner also takes a philosophical approach to what it means to be alive today, both on a literal and metaphorical level. He shares his points of view in a thoughtful manner, supporting his ideas with varied facts and references to great minds who have come before us. Through his words, readers are inspired to consider different perspectives and make their own decisions about what life means to them.
